Reading Club Discussion Series

Grassroots Challenges to the Savior Mentality

Join Allies at MIIS at the Center as we read this semester's Reading Club Book: No More Heroes: Grassroots Challenges to the Savior Mentality by Jordan Flaherty. Pertinent to our campus, this book explores how privilege affects the development world, usually for the worse. Read along with us this semester and join the discussion to delve deeper, as well as make solid steps towards the betterment of the development field. 

It is not required that you read the book to join the discussion. This event is open to the public.

Join us in a collaborative exercise to examine racial dynamics and equity on our campus. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join the discussion.
